Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-7-Each text provides background on the history, geography, rulers, people, life, arts, culture, and eventual fate of each civilization. However, the chapter titles do not always provide enough clues as to the complete scope of the section. The subheadings that divide the material into short, manageable segments are more helpful. Readers may need to skim each chapter spread, noting the subheading, to locate needed information. The pages are full of colorful photographs, illustrations, time lines, artwork, and diagrams complete with well-written captions. The texts offer more information than textbooks, but still do not delve deeply enough into each civilization to provide information for more than a simple report. However, the visual artifacts from each civilization are sure to interest students. None of the books includes a bibliography. The same information can be found in Ancient Egypt, Ancient China, and Aztec, Inca, and Maya (all DK, 2000) in the "Eyewitness" series.-Anne L. Tormohlen, Deerfield Elementary School, Lawrence, KS

This volume is a 20 page book for children about the age of six whose parents want to introduce them to an incorrect but thanfully brief history of China to the time of the Yuan.

Looking at Amazon's presentation, the book appears to be a social history of China in the Imperial period. It is not. Do not buy.

Awesome choice! June 9 2012

I ordered this book to preview for my 6th grade classroom. I love this series. In fact, we have ordered enough for each student in class to have a copy. It is agreat choice. It breaks up the content into sections kids can relate to such as daily life, technology, and much more. It also has lots of graphics to get kids interest. I highly recommend this series. We ordered several sets from the different titles. Great choice!!

Great elementary book of Ancient China! April 24 2014
By M. Bojczuk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this as a spine book for our homeschool's study of ancient China. We read a little of this book them stopped to read another book specific to a certain aspect of china (great wall, clay soldiers, Silk Road, ect) I used it as a read along for my 7 year old, 5 year old, and the 3 year old listened as she played near by us. We loved the pictures and the writing style was easy to follow along with. I really recommend this book to any one wanting to learn an elementary understanding of Ancient China.
